Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Joan and I graduated from local Mona Shores High School, Joan born and raised in Muskegon, Bob being a transplant. Currently reside in Northern California, able to get back to Muskegon a few times a year to 'enjoy' the seasons.

Why the Owner Chose Big Blue Lake:
Tore down the 60-70 year old house in 2006, built our retirement cabin in 2007 - much of the work done ourselves, too young to retire, made it available to others to use it prior to our exiting the working world!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
quiet place to relax to recharge your batteries!
